Bag Hand Man

And other fairly stupid conversations...

Daily Hoop Conversation:
Tink: Emo people confuse me.
Hoop: Me too. I mean, why would you name yourself after a Muppet on Sesame Street?
Tink: What?
Hoop: You know, the one that dances and sings.
Tink: I don't- Oh! *Bursts into laughter*
Hoop: What?
Tink: Not ELMO, you nerd. EMO!

Daily Hoop Conversation 2:
Tink: Why do you have a plastic produce bag on your hand?
Hoop: It's keeping me warm.
Tink: Oh-kay.
Hoop: Just call me, "Bag Hand Man."

Around The Water Cooler:
Tink: Got any big plans this weekend?
Coworker: I think my wife is dragging me out to a farmer's market or something on Saturday. Then on Sunday I'm going to landscape the front yard before it gets cold. We might go see a movie tonight. "The Kingdom" looks good. I don't know. We'll see. What about you? Got any plans this weekend?
Tink: I'm making cupcakes.
Coworker: Oh.
Tink: ...
Coworker: Is that all?
Tink: Is there a better way to spend the weekend?!

Spam Subjects:
(In the order I received them)
Did you get this yet? Get what?
Don't lose this. What is it?
We have what you need.
Lots of money?
Here, this is for you.
What is it?!
!..!!![]:! -.!! :(!!! ) : No need to get belligerent.
Custard Celestine Uh, thanks. Just what I've always wanted... Saint pudding.

Have a fantastic weekend!

P.S. Don't forget, the
WWC words for this week are Posed and Natural.

baking cupcakes sounds like a perfect way to spend a weekend...i plan on making pumpkin pie and pumpkin/apple spice muffins myself

Well to be fair Elmo is very Emo. And kind of a wuss too. LOL ;-)

Cupcakes? What kind of icing? Wait, it doesn't matter. Cupcakes are a good thing.

Pamer: You crack me up.

Geena: Damn. I wish you lived closer. We'd swap some goodies. :)

Jay: I found a recipe off the net for homemade buttercream cakes and frosting. I'll send you the recipe if it's good.

I love the image of Elmo wearing long black bangs.
And if pudding is good enough to be canonized, well, then that's just damn good pudding.

We're having "Funfetti" cake this weekend.

Have a good one yourself.

I asked my daughter for a description of Emo the other day (as opposed to Goth). She replied with "I'm soooooo sad. I must wear tight black clothes and grow my hair long enough to hide behind."

Made me chuckle. But not giggle, like tickle-me-elmo.

Ooooh...I want the recipe too!! Please!

Hoop is a nut, every time I think about "Bag Hand Man" it reminds me of that office depot commercial where they're singing rubber-band-man.

The Prince NEVER gets a name right...I should start writing it down for the blawwg

Where I work we have coffee pot conversations. People are constantly moving in and out of the Break Room as well as in and out of the conversations. Its fun just to sit for a bit and hear how the topic changes and is rearranged depending on who is in the room.

Baking cupcakes is a wonderful way to spend the weekend.

I'm going to the wineries with my girlfriend and leaving Shaun to deal with the kids maritalart/soccer/sleepover/twilightbowlingmess. And I don't feel one bit guilty!

OK, I admit it, I didn't know what Emo was and looked it up. I found this definition:

"tight jeans on males and females, long fringe (bangs) brushed to one side of the face or over one or both eyes, dyed black, straightened hair, tight t-shirts which often bear the names of rock bands (or other designed shirts), studded belts, belt buckles, canvas sneakers or skate shoes or other black shoes (often old and beaten up) and thick, black horn-rimmed glasses."

We called this "the 70s."

My niece called me one night and asked me why my daughter was dating an "EMU" guy. I said, "MY daughter is dating a big flightless bird?"

Well, it cracked ME up, anyways...

Your emo/Elmo conversation with Hoop reminds me of a "Chippy" interaction I had with my cousin once.

Alcohol was involved.

After we concluded a short discussion about Fred Rogers, I sang the last few words to Mr. Rogers' Neighbourhood theme song, to which she gave me a strange look and asked "Who is Chippy?"


"Yeah.. there was no neighbour named Chippy in that show.. why did you say Chippy?"

"I never said anything about a Chippy"

"You said he had a neighbour named Chippy"

I laughed like a loon when it hit me. A few moments later it hit her too and we both started singing..

"Won't Chippy.. won't Chippy.. oh won't Chippy my neighbour?"

I have just learned about the term, emo. According to the Urban dictionary, there are 226 definitions. My understanding is that emo means someone who cuts themselves and smokes pot. We had a girl at our school , who was suspected of this practice because she always wore long sleeves. After being asked the question by another student and then the school social worker, she has worn only short-sleeved shirts. So apparently, she does not particpate in this bizarre practice.

If only all Emos were Elmos, then the world would be a little better.

I'd rather have someone shaking out of pure joy than a depressed nicotine fit any day.

Uh. I guess I'm as old as a dinosaur fart. I mean, what the hell is an Emo?

Thanks to MJD, I think I now understand. I now know, I am not - nor ever have been - an Emo.


Do tell of the buttercream cakes!

I think it's insanity, and not plastic bags, that you keep you warm

Damn. I hope I didn't miss all the cupcakes. That's a great way to spend a weekend.

I don't know about you, but I can totally picture Elmo being Emo. Bobbing his head and clapping his hands to some Indie music while wearing his beanie and doom and gloom shirt.

At 08 October, 2007, Blogger Chelle Y. said...

You know, I thought you meant Elmo too! :)

If you make me strawberry cupcakes for my birthday I'll give you a hug and a peck on the cheek.
